The stories you tell

1 minute read
by Alex Hillman

You remember to talk about the future, what you haven’t done yet, because it’s still amazing/exciting to you. It’s easy and fun to dream, and share that dream with others.

But when the future doesn’t happen the way you imagined it, or the way you promised it, there’s disappointment. In others, but most of all in yourself. You lose momentum, and trust. With others, but most of all in yourself.

You forget to talk about the present or past because to you, it’s old news. It’s already happened. But for most people, it’s still new and exciting. And best of all, you can be sure it will happen because it already has.

Think about which stories you tell, and who you tell them for. Yourself, or for others?

This will help make sure you can find the most useful resources. I respect your privacy & email. Absolutely no spam, and I won't ever share your data. Pinky promise! 🤞

Hey, thanks for reading!

Alex Hillman I am always thinking about the intersection of people, relationships, trust and business. I founded Indy Hall in 2006, making us one of oldest fully independent coworking communities in the world. This site is packed with the lessons and examples I’ve learned along the way. You can find me on Twitter, too! 🐦 Say hi.
